Hi T & T Auto Inc,

Vehicle is equipped with immobilizer system and without the correct key, you would not be able to start it. There are no bypass procesures available as the immobilizer system is incorporated into the PCM.

The only other way apart from the correct key is to use a substitute PCM together with the correct key. Plug in PCM and tape the correct key to the vehicle key and use it to start the vehicle.
